When I can’t sleep ….

… I count my blessings.

My first blessing is my son.


He’s there for me when I need a ladder held or an ear to listen.

Second blessing, my family and friends. They have watched me travel some bumpy roads and have been the emotional triple A that kept me going.

Next blessing, my home. When I cross the threshold on cold, dark nights I am instantly grateful. The furnace provides warmth, the lights block out the dark, and the roof keeps me dry.

A girl could get used to this kind of thing.

Blessing number four, the pets in my life. They love me unconditionally, even when I have bed head.


Fifth blessing, my physical (and emotional) strength. Aside from the occasional meltdown in my local Lowe’s store, I think I’m doing pretty good.

No list of blessings would be complete without (drum roll please) …… my ducks!

But, you knew that already.

Hmmmm, let’s see if I can come with an even six blessings. Although I would love to add Keanu Reeves to the list, I won’t. Not until I can hear his penetrating voice in person.


Yes, I know I’m fickle. First Ryan Gosling, then Clive Owen, and now Keanu. Face it, I melt for handsome men.

Okay, for my sixth blessing I’ll choose life. Ups and downs aside, life rocks. And that’s an all emcompassing blessing.

Blessed be and Happy Thanksgiving.  ;}
